Kia Ora from Aotearoa, where your Scribe is enjoying some kiwi govt hospitality while trying to save the planet.
The Hash was hosted at HQ 1, On the Rocks, on Beach Road. Many hashers were overseas or absent so it was a smallish group that did a canter around the streets of Apia. We went past the cop shop, to the 4 corners at Malifa and took the broken bridge road. It was then on to the UN building and down past Vaiala beach and on home along the sea wall. The day was rather hot still so it was a bit of an ordeal even with such a short run.
POD the GM started the circle, and there were two newbies, Sophie and Angela who were there with someone called Mat, so Potu did a down down for not telling his guests the rules. The retreads consisted of Potu, who worked at SPREP some years ago and had been busy in Oz. He was back working with someone normally called Swinger at Hash, thus his re-introduction to the Hash became a double.
Poumuli had found no celebrities this week and was forced to accept the Hashers were keeping out of the News Award. This Day in History Awards went to Lewinsky (1999 – United States President Bill Clinton is acquitted by the United States Senate in his impeachment trial) and POD (Valentine’s Day – Poumuli enthused that surely she must have had the most romantic of celebrations!).
Slippery let it be known that he was leaving in June. Since this was a Premature Announcement it was made double. Lewinsky nominated Poumuli for short cutting, and the defence of a medical condition (bad knee/utmost stupidity – take your pick) was unrecognized.
Sam tried to nominate someone for the delayed announcement on the blog, but since this could easily be directed at POD she quickly pointed out that this was because we could not find anyone to host and was thus a rich charge coming from someone who has not hosted. Sam was joined by Murray.
Latecummer Awards went to Witch Doctor and Imelda da Welda, who had been working on Sassygirl BJs and Poumuli’s trash cans. Sam was asked if he was tired, no, Leaning Award, again joined by Murray.
The Hare and the Host, POD and Lewinsky were saluted before we sort of enjoyed the sweet and sour cat from Sunrise. By request see below:
Next week’s run is likely to be a Pink Run from Eveready and Karaoke’s house in Lotopa – watch the blog.
